My Problem

Broke my antenna while replacing my digitizer.

My Fix

After i got my antenna from ifixit and installed it, my wifi was 100% again.

My Advice

Bought 2 antennas from other companies and wifi was poor, found on forums to try ifixit product and the wifi was excellent. Will always buy my apple partts products from them.

My Problem

I had dropped my iPad 2 and cracked the front panel... twice, and on two corners.

My Fix

I used the guides. All went well. I am glad I ordered all of the parts I did. As it turned out I damaged the Wi-fi antenna when taking the front off. I put everything back together, including the new antenna... unfortunately there was no Wi-Fi... I contacted customer support, via email, and within two hours Matt had new antenna shipped out via priority mail. I installed the new antenna this morning. I am happy to report that all is well!

My Advice

Definitely order that antenna just in case you toast yours like I did. The Front Panel assembly is a better deal than just the glass, as it turned out I did not need the bezel replacement, but it is good to have jut in case. The opening kit worked well. heating the gel filled pad for 30 sec worked for me.

It was a good experience, do not be afraid to attempt this fix. Oh smallest Phillips bit in my Ifixit tool set worked great. The magnetic tip is essential. I also used the magnetic mat to keep the screws in one place. The white and black grid helps keep the screws in order, and more importantly keeps them in one spot so you are not faced with the prospect of getting on your hands an knees searching for TINY screws on the floor.

My Problem

While removing the screen I ripped the antenna, which to you who know is pretty easy to do.

My Fix

I first bought a cheap antenna from a vendor that I usually use. I thought it would be an easy fix. I told the customer that i would have it done in no time. Once I put the cheap antenna in there was little to no wifi reception. I ordered from ifixit.com and paid a little more for the part. It works perfectly now.

My Advice

Be very cautious when purchasing cheap parts for any device...

My Problem

Purchased a cheap ipad 2 Wi-Fi Antenna, installed it and could only get connected right at the router. Someone on the Apple Community page suggested trying an antenna from ifixit.

My Fix

Installed the ifixit antenna and my ipad2 is back working like it did when it was new.

My Advice

Be a little skeptical when buying cheap ipad parts.

My Problem

Display was broken

My Fix

Removed the front gently with iFixit heater.

Replaced the WiFi antenna and mount the new front.

The only negative thing was the glue down in the right corner. Tried to reheat that corner and hold it down, but that work only for a wild. After a few minute the front give a little opening.

My Advice

The strip with glue could be better.

My Problem

shattered front screen

My Fix

it was hard but now i know the inside of an iPad and probably could do it again

My Advice

agree with taping the broken front screen so its easier to pick up the broken bits. never forced the iPad, keep heating it.

My Problem

Broken screen on the iPad2, it's my wife's artist studio machine and it took a tumble while she was moving around canvases. It had an interesting straight line crack from side-to-side which in turn contained the crazing to 25% of the glass.

My Fix

Repair guide was helpful and accurate. The plastic pry tool left a bit to be desired as it deformed and got boogered pretty quickly. Found an exacto blade to be helpful but requires a deft hand.

I'm not sure that it's possible to remove the glass without killing the wifi antenna. I suppose it's possible with practice but I'm glad I followed the advice to purchase this together with the front panel kit. Not sure why adhesive is needed on frame and glass sides of the antenna but what do I know?

I inadvertently failed to tighten the logic board screws which leads to an unexpected result of the iPad rebooting whenever you tilt the device. Luckily the front panel came off easily and the screw tightening fixed the issue.

My Advice

1)Heat gun is a very useful additional tool.

2)Duct tape had enough adhesion to be useful in removing crazed glass slivers in intact chunks (I read a number of reports that packing tape didn't help).

3)Eye glass cleaning micro-cloth is a great way to clean LCD and both sides of glass

4)Shared the experience with my 11 year old son. He's a good extra set of hands and expert micro-screw turner/organizer. Micro-screw tightener was my job (which I failed as per above.)

My Problem

I was replacing the front panel of my dad's iPad after he dropped and cracked it and in the process ripped the original antenna due to general carelessness and a lack of planning

My Fix

The new antenna itself went in smooth as silk. Getting the front panel off is not something I particularly want to do again, but swapping out the antenna was just a case of "screw this in here, here, here, and here and pop this attachment onto the logic board." Then once I verified it worked I went back and undid it so I could sticky it in place and repeated the connection process

My Advice

Once you get the front panel off the antenna goes in really easily. Getting the front panel off is much easier when you use a small screwdriver that's been filed on one side to make a small chisel. A metal screwdriver is much stronger than the plastic opening tools and won't bend.

My Problem

The kids were playing with my wife's iPad, and our 2 year old decided to throw it! Needless to say the floor won. The unit was still operational, and the screen was fractured.

My Fix

I ordered the complete digitizer assembly with the repair tools, and the repair went well. The only thing I damaged was the wifi/bluetooth antenna in the repair process. I would suggest ordering this for the future, if performing this repair again.

My Advice

Take care to read the instructions, be careful with the screen removal. Use the packing tape trick on the broken screen removal!

My Problem

It looked like my daughter dropped her IPad from a two story window but it was only from her bed. She likes to read from it to fall asleep! Alas, no carpet flooring just tile. The tile wins!

My Fix

The instructions online were terrific and clear. The front panel was so shattered the guitar picks were not enough so I also used an exacto knife. But in doing so I cut the Wi-Fi antenna. No problem though I followed the suggestion and ordered one to send back. When everything was together again the screen shook and acted erratic. I was frustrated then but to the rescue the troubleshoot section of instructions told me to check the connection and un-kink the flat part to the screen (see how technical I am?). It worked, the IPad works, I'm happy, my daughter is happy, what could be better? CARPET!

My Advice

It helps that I have taken apart many electrical components. Before doing such a repair find an old junk amplifier, radio, computer and take it apart for fun!
